Institute of Technical education

The Institute of Technical Education (ITE) accepts students based on their GCE "O" level or GCE "N" level results and they provide 2-year courses leading to a locally recognised "National ITE Certificate." There are 10 ITE Colleges in Singapore. A few ITE graduates continue their education at polytechnics and universities. ITE students are sometimes seen as being less capable and possibly less successful than polytechnic or JC students. Recent speeches by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and Minister of Education Tharman Shanmugaratnam have pointed out that there can be different definitions and types of success, in a bid to work towards a more inclusive society.
ITE provides four main levels of certification:
  • Master National ITE Certificate (Master Nitec)
  • Higher National ITE Certificate (Higher Nitec)
  • National ITE Certificate (Nitec)
  • Technical Engineer Diploma (TED) (from 2007) [37]
There are also other skills certification through part-time apprenticeship courses conducted jointly by ITE and industrial companies.
The Institute of Technical Education campuses were reorganised under the "Collegiate system" into 3 major colleges around the island, a regrouping and renaming exercise which took effect on 1 January 2005. ITE College East was the first to open in Simei in January 2005, and the existing "ITE East Network" campuses were renamed as "ITE College Central" campuses, to be replaced by a new campus in Ang Mo Kio. "ITE West Network" campuses were renamed "ITE College West" campuses, and their new campus will be at Choa Chu Kang. The two new campuses will open by 2015 .

Universities in Malaysia

Universities in Malaysia(Universiti Dan Kolej Di Malaysia)

There are 20 Public Universities (IPTA) in Malaysia. Malaysia also has 60 Private Higher Education Institutions (IPTS) like Universiti Teknologi Petronass (UTP), Universiti Multi Media (MMU) and Universiti Tenaga Nasional (Uniten).
These universities, university colleges and polytechnics nationwide produced 184,581 graduates in 2011.
There are 90,000 over foreign students studying in Malaysia
With over 90,000 international students from over 100 nations studying in Malaysia, the country is the world’s 11th largest exporter of educational services.
Malaysia is fast becoming an educational hub for excellence in the Asian region because its tertiary education sector has grown exponentially in the past decade.
The vision of Malaysian government is to create a higher education environment that fosters the development of academic and institutional excellence in order for the country to secure its position as a global education hub.
Schools from Australia and the United Kingdom (UK) were setting up branches in Malaysia in the past 10 years, and this reflects Malaysia’s growing educational domain.
As the world’s 11th largest exporter of educational services, Malaysia has over 90,000 international students from over 100 nations studying in schools, colleges, university colleges and universities.
Malaysia is increasingly being seen a regional leader in providing world-class education, with 200,000 international students expected in Malaysia by 2020.

The higher education ministry expects to earn RM6 billion a year from foreign students based on an average earning of RM30,000 per student.

Malaysia has become a popular destination for the pursuit of higher education among foreign students, more and more established reputable universities from around the world will set up their branch campuses here, working jointly with Malaysian universities and colleges.
Malaysia is an attractive destination for overseas students as a stable, safe and relatively cheap place to study.
In 2012, there are 25 foreign universities applied to set up campuses in Malaysia.
This has proven that the interest in the Malaysia's tertiary education sector has shifted to higher gear.
The Government's focus on the education sector had made Malaysia a centre of educational excellence in the region.

Malaysia currently hosts more than 93,000 international students from more than 100 countries, with 150,000 targeted by 2015 and 200,000 by 2020.

Ranked as the world's 11th largest exporter of educational services, the government is counting on the increased demand for quality education from students in existing and new markets, like the Middle East, China and Africa.
Increase in foreign student's enrollment in Malaysia has made the country one of the strongest emergent contenders in the international market of foreign students.
Malaysia has :
1) 11 private universities,
2) 5 branches of foreign universities,
3) six university colleges,
4) one virtual University
5) one Open University in Malaysia.

By 1999 at least 70 institutions of higher education from UK had some kind of collaborative arrangement with Malaysian private institutions.
Compare this with the situation in 1995, when 20 per cent of Malaysian students studied abroad – costing the country an estimated RM2.4 billion a year.
The policy of internationalization in higher education in Malaysia has evolved due to necessity in keeping with the demands of changing market economies. To transform from a production based economy to a knowledge based economy requires a highly skilled and knowledgeable workforce.

To that end, the Malaysian government sought to partner with foreign higher educational institutions to offer more educational opportunities for Malaysians on their own soil.
The internationalization policy for higher education in Malaysia was formulated with six critical aspects in mind, that is:
1) student mobility,
2) staff mobility,
3) academic programs,
4) research and development,
5) social integration and
6) community development

These new policies were soon translated into regulatory frameworks to provide quality education in the private sector coupled with support from international institutions of higher education.

The government focused on making Malaysia a leader in education in Southeast Asia, and the foundations laid will take the country forward in the next few decades as well.

The education system is a clear success story, and international students have voted with their feet by choosing Malaysia over other countries.

Universiti Malaya achieved its best position in the QS Asian University Rankings 2012.
UM placed 35th overall, the highest among higher learning institutions in Malaysia.
UM achieved an overall score of 71.4 out of a possible 100 and ranked fourth for inbound and outbound student exchange.

UM also ranked number one in Malaysia for academic reputation and employer reputation.

QS Asian University rankings represent the most extensive study of institutions conducted with 500 universities assessed and include responses to academic and employer surveys by QS.

Higher Learning Institutions in Malaysia Universities
Malaysian government regards highly skilled human capital as the nucleus of a knowledge-based economy and has been attempting to reform higher-educational policies in both the public and private sectors since 1990s.
The Malaysian government put in place a good framework of legislations on education which were tabled in the House of Parliament between 1995 and 1997. “Education reform” is seen as a key concern in Malaysia since independence in 1963. Currently there are 20 public universities and 6 university collages established under the Universities and University Colleges Act.
Recent years a global consensus has emerged in the importance of investing in human capital, which is viewed as an essential part of efforts to raise incomes and achieved sustained economic growth of a country. In that respect the human capital produce from the university educational system should be competitive in term of knowledge and skills and in term of character and integrity. The trend of labor market in Malaysia suggests that there is an urgent need to invest in such new education system.
The Key challenge of the education system is to provide Malaysia with a competent workforce with knowledge and skills. Overall it has been widely reported that the country needs an estimated 2.2 million total workforce by 2010.
The Role of Higher Institutions is to produce a competent workforce equipped with the skills, knowledge, attitude and behavior to meet the demands of the high-technology era. Presently, only about 12% of the general population pursue tertiary studies locally and a significant portion of those students study abroad (NAPIEI, 2002). By the year 2020, the government hopes that 40 percent of the Malaysian population will attend tertiary education. All Universities in Malaysia play a significant role in fulfilling these needs. The prerequisite of a successful institution of higher learning is to have skilled workforce. Hence human resource development in a university is vital and remains significant in this millennium.

The development of higher education in Malaysia is moving forward globalizing. Universities and colleges are facing new challenges in advancement and progression. Overseas universities such as in U.K, USA, Australia are transforming themselves into global universities, establishing new campuses and exporting educational programmes in other foreign countries. In Malaysia, Nottingham University and Monash University, are good example of such global universities. Malaysia accept overseas universities to set up campuses here at the same time want the local universities to be at par with these universities. Local universities should be able to produce graduates of comparable quality. A healthy competition with the foreign universities is able to improve the quality of Malaysian own universities's potential and strength.
The Ninth Malaysian Plan, turn Malaysia into a regional centre for higher education. By 2010 Malaysia should become a global education hub and to be able to attract 100,000 students from overseas. Today, there are already students from the West Asia and China and surrounding countries. Given its strategic location, its resources, and its past role as the cultural crossroad of the world, Malaysia is unquestionably the most appropriate place to be a regional hub for higher educational learning.

Malaysian Colleges and Universities have also begun taking their programmes overseas. Several Malaysian institutions have set up programmes in over a dozen countries. This remarkable success serves as the catalyst to Malaysian institutions to improve its educational services and courses.

To turn Malaysia into a regional hub of academic excellence, Malaysian must be alert to new ideas and new strategies. The main priorities, for local universities and colleges is to offer courses pertinent to Malaysia’s development. Graduates produced must have skills and knowledge relevant to every sector of the economy of the country.
Malaysian government aware the urgent need in services and knowledge-based sectors such as finance and banking, biotechnology, Information and Communication Technology (ICT), multimedia content development, advanced manufacturing, and industrial design.

Human capital is a key pillar to the relentless quest for greater development. Malaysia consistently sets aside a high proportion development budget, averaging 20%, for education. In order to ensure that students gain relevant and cutting edge skills, education institutions should link closely with industries. Academic staff particularly in engineering, technology and the bio-medical fields must keep abreast with current progress in the private sector. Only then they are able to transmit new knowledge and advances to their students.
In spite of the prevailing trend of modernization, market forces and industry requirements should not solely determine the direction of higher education. Otherwise university programmes offered will be largely commercially-driven and lacking in comprehensiveness. Universities and colleges must be centers that advance our knowledge of culture and be custodians of the enduring richness of civilization. Modernization must not come with cultural degradation.

Foundation of Malaysia unique cultural heritage and religious values should be further strengthened as this country embarks on its journey to become a knowledge powerhouse in the region. Malaysians should strive to contribute positively to human civilization and progress. Malaysia has a natural strength in its cultural diversity to prosper as an inter-civilization knowledge centre while attending to technological innovation, scientific research, and financial management. Thus universities must be open to all knowledge and ideas, and to encourage a contestation of ideas. Only then would our universities be truly world class.

Language Medium of Instruction in Malaysia
English is the primary medium of instruction in all private higher educational institutions in Malaysia. Bahasa Malaysia is used in all Bachelor's Degree courses in Public Government Universities (except for subjects like Maths and Science which are conducted in English). English is only used for postgraduate studies at public universities.

Foreign University Branch Campus in Malaysia
Malaysia is an education hub providing courses tailored to satisfy the local market's needs and expectations. It also offers foreign qualifications that students can pursue in Malaysia in branch campuses from Universities of United Kingdom and Australia.
